Could've renamed the previous thread to contain both the names. No?
I suppose it is not possible to rename.
I say this because the conversations will be spread over 2 threads now.

Edit : just checked detailed ministerial instructions for both the draws. It is on the same page for both, and says draw #141 and #142 respectively.

Hi Guys,
Just wanted to confirm that in one of the IRCC tweets they have mentioned that ITA's issued nowadays will not be processed in not less than 6 months. Does that mean it will take more than 6 months once documents are submitted or do they mean that they would start processing after 6 months upon receival of applications.

I commented this on a different thread, but I feel it's worth repeating here. I interpret that as meaning the minimum time for processing is now 6 months. So, it might take 6, 7, 8 months to process. Before, you could be lucky, and have it processed in 4/5 months. But now, I think what they're saying is minimum processing time after you submit the application is 6 months. Doesn't make any sense that they'd say it only starts being processed after 6 months.

Oh man... I knew that. I hoped someone could give me some hope on the situation.

It seems Im so down on luck. My CRS right now is at 471. Joined the pool on the 27th of Feb (got delayed thanks to my stupid university who took more than a month to send the transcripts through). I was so happy when the next awaited FSW draw on 4th March was announced with the cutoff of 471, then not so much when i saw the tie breaker rule applied (24thFeb 2020).

However i still had hopes up of the draws happening in the future. This is such bad news to me as situations at home are not good. Hoped for a better future, now that seems quite far ahead.

I it is clearly written on the wall . No chances for FSW until the virus capsize
that's Bloomberg and there were quite a lot of similar articles earlier as well.

I know we guys are quite excited about recent draws but we must also look at the pattern during this excitement.

the focus has been shifted on CEC & more towards PNP (for the applicants who had PNP nomination issued) and expiry for their work permit and PNP nomination is near to expiring, GC is aiming to retain first those candidates if you know what i mean.

Why no FSW draws are happening, this is a broader question and multiple reasons now associated to it i believe. First and foremost, COVID-19, then the staggering unemployment rate in March 2020 (April will be more worst and i wish i am wrong) and then travel and lock-down restrictions worldwide.

but again, we cannot conclude FSW draws have been put on hold until a clear statement from GC.

You might be right but trust me, it is unprofessional for such organization to issue out such statement as there are still people in the FSW who are receiving ITAs. Canada has move from regular activities to essential activities only until the virus diminish. Even if they return to normal, it might be more of PNP as they would have achieved their target with CEC/PNP route. All they need to do is increase study permit which inturn will increase the strength of CEC. This is exactly what Australia is practicing. Study permit is a huge source of revenue and Canada needs all the money they can assess at this time. Remember that these CEC/PNP candidates make up tax payers and potential voters so it is more of an economic and political instrument to protect them.
